Wonderful FEBE Puntuado con 5 de 5 estrellas

Thanks Chuck for the wonderful FEBE. As others have mentioned, a full profile backup to an XPI file would be a sweet option. Would this be difficult to develop?

Quite good and useful Puntuado con 4 de 5 estrellas

This is a very useful add-on, and works quite well.

The only things I found to grumble about were:

1) The backup is sometimes incomplete (I usually backup just before closing a session - and there is no safeguard against a session closing before the backup is finished saving - so you have to wait and guess when it is done).

2) Whenever you install FEBE it it loads a welcome page (some people might be fine with this - but if you use it often the page becomes annoying).

3) There is no way of backing up to an installable xpi (yes, someone else has mentioned this - I mention it again because it would be VERY useful - just drag the xpi to a fresh Firefox install, and you're done - no first installing FEBE, then restarting, then creating a new profile, restoring to that profile, and then restarting using that profile).

But despite those (perhaps minor) complaints this is, at the moment, the best Firefox backup extension available.

Backed up all of my other extensions. Safety first!

@JD isn't that what the CLEO add-on is for (by the same developer)?

The best backup addon for Firefox at the moment. Would be nice if it could pack all your addons and settings into a single xpi you could then drag to a new install of Firefox.

I've been using FEBE since you first started it. I want to congratulate you on keeping up with this addon, even when FF has been a royal pain in the arse over the years.

not so good Puntuado con 2 de 5 estrellas

Ok, so firefox refused to start with my current profile anymore and I had this regularly created FEBE backup. Just restore the profile and good to go, right?

Hell, no.

After restoring profile I had my extensions and some of them even had their settings. eg. stylish and foxyproxy seem to be working. However

- session lost
- firefox preferences lost
- FEBE settings lost - yeah, soo awesome
- TMP preferences lost
- personas lost
- password hasher settings lost

Next time I will use tar for backups :s

And no, the profile was not corrupted at the time of backup.

The backup does not even contain session data so it obviously cannot be restored, corrupted or not.

A FEBE restore is only as good as its backup. If you backup a corrupted profile, the restored one will still be corrupted.

Using tar will result in the same thing.

Hi Chuck,

I wanted to publicly say THANKS to you and your awesome coding of the Firefox Environment Backup Extension.

I have been messing around with Xmarks for years and got fed-up with their server accessibility funk, etc., etc.

I recently bought a Synology NAS and tried to use Xmarks and WebDav to serve locally my bookmarks and add-on backups. Well, I spent several hours of frustration flailing around in Synology’s WebDav and shared folders to no avail.

I knew there was something out there that did what I (we) needed: A basic backup of add-ons and bookmarks. – That is when I can across FEBE.

I have 6+ machines on my personal LAN and 4 of those I need to keep backed up with the same FF bookmarks and extensions.

FEBE is awesome, the features and options are exactly what I and what many others needed – oh… and the report, are you kidding me? That thing is crazy detailed, it gives the names, authors, size and date with an awesome mouse-over.

An html link to my NAS drive with all my bookmarks and extensions – VERY nice.

YOU are a miracle worker Chuck! – Paypal sent!

Happy Thanksgiving.

Well, I suppose backup was a breeze. But I wouldn't know, because actually using the backup to restore settings is next to impossible. The directions for a restore are very unclear.

Restore doesn't work on Mac Puntuado con 4 de 5 estrellas

It's pretty good at backing up, but restore doesn't work on Mac on FF version 24.0.
Verified with an empty FF profile.

Apart from this, it's not bad.

Great add-on! Puntuado con 5 de 5 estrellas

I was able to use FEBE 7.3.0.1 to do a complete profile backup from Pale Moon 24.0.1, which was restored to Firefox 24.0 AND Pale Moon x64 24.0.1 with no problems at all. Flawless experience, and will be my preferred method of backup/restore over the standalone MozBackup (which hasn't been updated in a while).

Unfortunately, A Waste of Time Puntuado con 1 de 5 estrellas

I had to uninstall and reinstall Firefox 23, so I installed and ran a backup. It backed up my extensions OK. but when I try to restore them nothing happens. I have 59 backed up extensions (It apparently backs up even the disabled ones), so I tried several times just restoring one. Not even an error message, no indication it even executed. Very disappointed, because it would have been a real time saver. Too bad I can't give it a 0 star rating.

An error must be occurring

This is not the proper place to offer technical support. An error is most certainly occurring, but you need to look in the error console. Please leave a post in my support forum (http://www.customsoftwareconsult.com/forum/index.php) and I will help you resolve the problem.
